YIFY Closes, Pulls Plug On YTS Site

By on

Torrent release group YIFY and its official YTS website makes a regrettable move and have closed its doors permanently. After the popular movie torrent site YTS stopped posting for ten days, a number of users were concerned and rumors surfaced saying that they have finished for good. It was then later confirmed that YTS, along with YIFY, have officially shut down, according to Torrent Freak.

It has also been verified that YIFY movie releases from other torrent websites will not appear anymore and that the shutdown is permanent. And although YIFY will not be posting movies anytime soon, there are still a number of reliable torrents to depend on.

In a previous interview with Torrent Freak, YIFY shared the reason behind their success in the business of torrents. ?We aim to bring Hollywood films to the masses at smaller file-size. Our primary goal is to enable users from all parts of the world, who have bandwidth or hard drive limitations, to download and enjoy this content,? YIFY shared.

?I personally think that many people are following and downloading YIFY encodes due to the consistency we offer in our releasing. Everything from the consistent film cover art, to the information layout, and ultimately to the file-size of our encodes,? YIFY said according to Torrent Freak.

?I believe this is important because people like stability and assurance with what they are downloading. By adding consistency to a reasonable file-size, we have filled a spot in the community, which seemingly has a lot of demand,? YIFY added. The famous torrent group started in 2010 and has released over 6,000 torrents with the website of YTS also gaining popularity.

According to Torrent Freak, the website ?has received additional explanatory details from trusted sources? but have been asked not to divulge all the information just yet. The operator of YIFY and YTS still has no remarks regarding the permanent shutdown.
